Seeking, risking, and making
art, and sharing joys, challenges, successes and lessons learned

I took a photo of one of my clients' azalea bush the other morning, because it was just after a gentle rain, and the sun was shining, causing the raindrops to twinkle on the blossoms. I love the photo as a photo, but I wanted to paint more the impression of the blossoms than a botanical image [frankly I haven't the patience to do much detail!]. I also wanted to practice with the lizard lick brush I bought for Myrna Wacknov's workshop in Portland [in April]. I haven't mastered the brush yet, but it was fun trying. Back to the drawing board!
